This essay acts as a coda to my previous extended essay “There is nothing to stick to”. There I explored “anarchy” in spiritual, philosophical, artistic and political dimensions. Yet, thinking about this essay, I asked myself what it really amounted to and the answer that seemed to come to me from this thinking was “living according to nature”. This theme plausibly fits within an understanding of Taoism, Nietzsche’s biologistic philosophy, the music and practice of John Cage, Emma...

In Jesus and The Community Gospel the thesis is put forward that an early community of Jesus' followers behind the earliest forms of the Q Gospel and the Gospel of Thomas, one located in Galilee, were focused around a message ascribed to Jesus that mixed together aspects of Cynic appearance and performance with a strand of Jewish eschatology. In the study a general heuristic scheme is proposed for roughly the first 100 years after Jesus and then the Common Sayings Tradition, material common to...

The Wisdom of the Tao is a book of thoughts and ponderings primarily guided by philosophy that stems from the Eastern philosophical  spiritualities of Taoism and, secondarily, Buddhism. This includes quotations from and of original and ancient texts as well as more contemporary and original thoughts based on interaction with them. Also included are two sections by significant Western thinkers, who also interacted with Eastern thought, Friedrich Nietzsche and Martin Heidegger, and an essay on...

"There is nothing to stick to" is an extended essay discussing the notion of anarchy in spiritual, philosophical, musical, artistic or aesthetical and political senses. It starts with Taoism as found in the key Taoist text, the Tao Te Ching, before wandering through the works of Friedrich Nietzsche, the music and writing of American musical pioneer, John Cage, and finishing with the political activism and writing of leading anarchist of the early 20th Century in Europe and America,...

Sound and Fury is a collection of 21 blogs and short essays, written over 2 years, concerned with human beings, their interactions with one another in culture and society and the ethics of all that. Whether discussing suicide or music, Feminism or Truth, this is essentially what the collection as a whole comes down to. Along the way the book manages to engage subjects such as music, war and human identity as well as many other things but, at its heart, it continues along pathways I have been...

I first became interested in electronic music in the 1980s as a teenager. Over nearly 40 years I have continued to be interested in it both in various professional capacities but also as an avid fan and listener.  In this book I detail, in numerous short essays which together form an interconnecting thesis about electronic music itself, some of the significant figures and movements from its history together with what I see as its possible roles in life and the world. I write as a fan of...

Diogenes: A Dissimulation is a novel but not a novel like you have ever read before. It is part narrative, part manifesto, part horror and part fantasy. At times it will seem like the novel has stopped and, instead, the text has started rambling about random issues. But stick with it because the fiction of reality that this novel unfolds is still very much in play. Diogenes is a book for thinkers, a book for those prepared to question societal norms and to broach philosophical shibboleths. It...

This book is a working out, in thirteen philosophical, spiritual, cultural and thoughtful essays, of something I have dubbed "being-in-the-midst", a way to understand our common human situation in life. These essays, then, are not merely about their ostensible subjects but simultaneously about what a human being is and what it means to be human. They are a series of starting points that should be explored by readers for their implications and not merely for their content.
Topics: philosophy, spirituality, culture, judaism, christianity, taoism, ethics, hermeneutics,...

The fourth and final in a series of books studying the historical Jesus, the sources for him, the history of research and strategies for doing such historical research. This volume critiques four books written by conservative scholars (Dale Allison, James Dunn, Scot McKnight and Tom Wright) and then sets out a plan for such research in a philosophically hermeneutic context.

My third book about the historical Jesus, this volume sets him in the contexts of the books and literary religious culture that he comes from. An excursus about Judaism's historical attachment to texts, interpretation and God as a communicative being leads into intertextual entanglements, databases of gospel parallels and material regarded as being illustrative for a historical interpretation of Jesus and my designation of the historical Jesus as a Cynic prophet who preached God's kingdom of...

The Gospel of No One is a follow on from my previous book, also on the Internet Archive, The Posthistorical Jesus. It looks at the gospels as literary works of myth and parable before looking at two "gospels" not explicitly in the New Testament, the gospels Q and Thomas. It argues these gospels are historical witnesses to a different kind of historical Jesus. Next the book argues that the death and resurrection narratives in the New Testament gospels are meaningful fictions before...

The Posthistorical Jesus is a collection of three studies about the historical Jesus. It begins with a look at the Quest of the Historical Jesus and argues that its product is always "fiction" and that its philosophical basis has often been naively positivist, realist and objectivist. A more pragmatist approach is recommended. In the middle study a speculative study of the historical gospel of Jesus is carried out with observational asides before, in the concluding study, the Quest...

The Void Variations is one continuous piece of music which contains within it 39 separate variations. This piece is intended to be long and is electronic, taking mostly from notions of abstract and Berlin School electronic that was first pioneered in 1970s Germany. Thematically, this music is about the void of human existence, the lack of meaning we have at our core as human beings and is a soundtrack to the notion that "the void" is not out there, as represented by space and/or time,...

This piece of music was created using a modified form of the technique known as "cadavre exquis" or "exquisite corpse", a form of serial blind composition in which the participants do not know what those before or after them in the composition process have done. In this case 23 musicians created one piece of music as they each created around five minutes of the finished piece which is all 23 pieces stitched together (one musician contributed two pieces making 24...
